Months ago, RJR Fabrics asked if I'd like some solids to play with and then blog about. Umm, yes please.
I've always loved RJR's cottons. Having worked in a quilt shop for over four years, I've had the privilege of handling a lot of different fabrics, and these just have a wonderful hand, so nice and soft.
In all honestly, I'd started something else completely scrappy... and then scrapped it. It looked very, very odd to me for some reason. I don't even remember what I did, I just remember not liking it at all.
Thankfully I hadn't gotten far, so I ended up making courthouse steps (what else is new!?) and thought the solids would do really well with bunching them in fours so it looks very graphic. I used prints for the centres so that it would give it a little interest, and I used a sketch fabric for one of the light greys. Mainly because I'd run out of colour combos and fabric. So now, it's a design element hehehe!
If you'd like to have a peek at the wonderful projects my fellow quilters have made, you can go to the RJR Facebook page and have a browse :) And if you'd like to buy these yummy solids, Pink Castle Fabrics has a lovely selection!
